What is cold-pressing?

Unlike normal manufacturing processes, cold-pressing does not use high temperatures or pressure. This means that most of the valuable nutrients are preserved and can be utilised by your dog.

Lukullus - trust in the power of nature!

Please note: Store in a cool and dry place. Do not transfer into hermetically sealed containers. Our products are completely natural and we do not use any artificial additives such as preservatives, colours and attractants so our cold-pressed dry pet foods only have a minimum shelf life of 8 months.

Hi, would this food be okay as a topper (not as a meal) or should I go for something else ? thanks

A couple of questions so I can hopefully help - for what benefit would you be adding this as a topper? To add fruit, veg and carbs; add something dry on top of wet/raw, or something else? Thanks

Hi, yes to add to wet and cooked minces for an extra boost.

Sorry for the late reply! I agree toppers are good to add to cooked food or mince but to be honest I wouldn't be adding a carb-heavy cooked topper (as the fab nutrients are lost by cooking even in cold-pressed so better to add fresh). There are many just veggie toppers in wet/fresh/dehydrated form (have a Google) or you can add your own fruit and veg from home! Dogs do not have a biological carbohydrate requirement, but adding good fresh fruits (blueberries, blackberries etc) and veggies (spinach, kale, broccoli etc) is brilliant x

Actually dogs do require carbohydrates- they produce Amylase in their saliva. This is an enzyme which specifically breaks down starch. Dogs who don't have some form of carbohydrates, can suffer brain damage in later life. I have verified this with my vet. He says diets are fashionable and are there to make huge sums of money. A dog is an omnivore, not a carnivore and therefore requires a balanced diet.

Hi, I am a veterinary student and have been taught from veterinary nutritionists that dogs are facultative carnivores and do not have a biological requirement for carbohydrates in their diet - however that does not mean they cannot digest carbs or benefit from them, but it means that they biologically do not need them to survive. A balanced diet means a diet that has all the vitamins and minerals and in the right ratios for a dog to survive. Take some of the butchers wet food for example, they are complete and balanced per FEDIAF guidelines but have a minimal/negligible carbohydrate content. Hope this helps!
